Peace in My Mind in Front of the Temple, Gaesim-sa

in #travel3 years ago

There are lots of historic temples in Choongcheongdo province where is located in the middle area in Korea. I’d like to introduce in this posting Gaesim-sa temple among them.
Gaesim means ‘open heart’ literally.
This temple is believed to be built in the early Choson dynasty.

It must be the one of the luckiest temple in Korea. Through tough history, this temple never have suffered the destroy or the fire. It could escape from the wars and the disasters.

I was curious how this temple could escape from those disasters.
The answer was the location. The mountain where this temple is located is not so famous.
This mountain is far from the main road. And it is not so famous for its beauty.

The ordinary seemed to protect this temple from the tough destiny other temple could not escape from.

Now this situation was changed a lot, I could ride to just the near of the temple along the road constructed along the long and bending mountain ridges and slopes.






When I got there, there was a pond in front of the temple. The temple on the top of the mountain was very impressive. It shows the water is sufficient for living. And there was a dried tree near the pond. That dried pond made the circumstance of the temple more historic.

The scenery around the pond was so wonderful, so I’d like to share this beauty with our friends in Steemit.

I felt the peace of my mind deeply entering into this temple. I might be the pond and the old trees made me peaceful.

Those pond and the trees seemed to help my mind opened.


Obviously that scenery is so stunning! With your photography I also feel the beauty around that location! Would like to see more photography about this temple! I wish lots of stunning nature you could photography there! Thank you!


beautiful photos, @slowwalker.

The reflecting pool enhances the peace and serenity of that mountain retreat, with the temple safely nestled among trees and far from the beaten path.

There's a virtue in dwelling in obscurity - in this case, it preserved the temple - in the case of the individual it allows one to grow as a person and reflect on the truths of life far from the glare of publicity.

There is much to be said for the hidden life and the day of small things, my friend.

Truly beautiful scenes of beautiful nature...The pictures of your nature are very beautiful.. Love your lovely friend @slowwalker
